The topic of this week’s meeting was a two part career development extravaganza! After hearing from Google and Lockheed Martin in the weeks prior, we were joined by former (and future) Microsoft Intern Emiko Charbonneau to hear about some of the great experiences to be had at Microsoft.
After discussing the types of areas that are available at Microsoft, Miko went in-depth on the composition of a typical software development team and gave attendees a great look at the type of work they could be doing as a Microsoft Software Development Engineer (SDE), Software Development Engineer in Test (SDET), and Program Manager (PM).
After covering the opportunities at Microsoft, and hearing about Miko’s first hand experience working in Redmond, we switched gears to discuss tips and tricks on how to nail a technical interview.
Leading the presentation was Shane Chism who, as recently as last November, went through the full interview process with Microsoft. Shane discussed the various things to expect out of a full interview experience with a technical company; from the resume screen all the way to final round interviews.
Shane provided some invaluable resources that any student interested in getting an internship or full time job with a big tech company should check out.
